BRANSON HEADLINES READ
Featuring the final Branson museums, I want to highlight a few in Branson -- Venturing a few miles south of Branson to Point Lookout, the College of the Ozarks is home to several historic sites and this beautiful campus is a must see Branson attraction. The Ralph Foster Museum is dedicated to the history of the Ozarks and the Edwards Mill is a working mill powered by a 12-foot water wheel. Creating memories with your children would not be complete without teaching them about the men and women who have served our great country in all branches of military service. The Veterans Memorial Museum honors those who have provided the freedoms we enjoy today. Welcoming you at the front door is a full-size World War II P-51 Mustang fighter plane and inside over 2,000 military artifacts. Your hearts will be touched as you exit the museum after viewing the 15-ton bronze sculpture consisting of 50 life-size solders storming a beach. Names of the men and women who lost their lives serving our country line the walls throughout the museum.
